For the age of the ship, Grandeur of the Seas, it was in very good condition. It was very clean in all public areas as well as our stateroom. The food in the dining room was good most of the time and our waiter... well lets just say I'd have loved to bring him home with me. He was wonderufl (Gabriel) - Never missed a step! The lunch Salad Bar in the Dining Room was awesome. The food in the Windjammer (buffet) was very good, as well, but the layout realy should be approachable from all side - as the lines were way too long during lunch. The Solarium (Adult area) was very nice although the pools in both areas were quite small and way over crowded.... And the there were too many "saved" chairs - The rule was not enforced. Our stateroom was very nice and clean and was a good size (large oceanview) with lots of stroage area. Our room attendant was wonderful as well. As for ship activites.... There was a Lack of "real" activities other than seminars for you to spend more money using the ship servies: ie - Casino, Shops, and Spa. Although the Adult nightly entertainment was very good. We were celebrating our 20th Anniversary and although this may sound like a lot of cons - we had a wwonderful time and met some great people.

The island is beautiful but a bit pricey. Our dollar is worth less there and food is quite expensive... 1 beer, 1 cocktail, 2 appetizers = $43 before tip.
Don't Miss: We did the Shipwreck Snuba Excursion and it was absolutely awesome. The staff at Snuba Cayman was great and it felt like we were on a "private" excursion.

The market area. Lots of haggling to be done and some great authentic food can be found there. The market area doesn't look like much, but it was a fun time. Also the liquor stores and some bars offer abundant Tequila tasting.

Pros: Dining and Stateroom staff were wonderful!

Cons: Lack of
